Why I Bother with Algebra (by sonya sones)

One day
I’ll be walking
down the street
and a frantic
but very handsome guy
will rush up to me
and say, “Excuse me,
but I don’t suppose
you happen to know
the discriminant of
2x squared – 3x + 5?
It’s really important!”
And I’ll smile sweetly
and say,
“Why, of course I do.
It’s seven.”
He’ll say,
“Oh, thank you, thank you!
You don’t know how much
this means to me!
I’ve got to go now,
could I have
your phone number?”
